"®£t eijergtfjing anti Icabe its fbaluation to postcritg/' 

"N the year 1886 I issued a Catalogue of Wigan and District 
Books and Pamphlets. Since that date by purchase and 
donation a large amount of material has accumulated, and the 
scope of the Collection has greatly extended. Its value to the 
local historian must always be important, the motto placed at 
the head of these forewords, chosen by the eminent bibliographer, 
Mr. W. C. Berwick Sayers, fitly describing the method of its 
acquisition. To that motto I would append the one upon our 
Reference I^ibrary bookplate: " TOt tiul, ilii aprs,"
